    Lesley Chamberlain was interesting and it was a nice tribute; I especially liked the mention of authenticity/freedom. Ben Goldacre made some good points and evidently deserved his trophy; he does good work encouraging others to think about their contribution to problems - though he does talk more of individual people than ever of systemic error, which I wonder is the source of half the problem - Chinese whispers and distance from effect encourages error.

    Anyone who went to the Eventbrite site and found the tickets had gone, please take another look. We can fit in another 50 people, so tickets are now available again.

      Ideally book a ticket on Eventbrite but don't worry if you haven't, I'll make sure you get in anyway (as long as you're on time).
